Get ready for Easter – DIY projects

This year my husband and I have invited my whole family for Easter lunch.

Since my grandfather passed away last Christmas, I wanted the whole family to get together even more. We’re the only ones left, and I want us to stay close and be in each others lives. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about my grandfather – I miss him so much – but this way I know he and my grandmother would be proud.

I’m trying to plan which dishes to make, but I’ve still got a long way to go. Instead I started looking at DIY projects for Easter. I know the kids will love making hama bunny’s and decorate Easter eggs.

I’ve collected some of my favourite Easter DIY projects. I hope you and your family will have a fun time while making decorations for the Easter table.

The bag from Zara

Do you remember the super cute bag from Zara, which I showed you in this post? The one from their ss16 girls collection. Well, I went back a few days later to find out that it was sold out.

A few days later, I still thought about the bag, and I went back. This time it was back in stock, and I hit ‘Buy’ so fast, you wouldn’t believe it. Now I’m waiting for it to arrive.

And no, I didn’t buy it for my girl, I hope that I can use it as a small bag myself. If not, then I’m pretty sure she’ll be more than willing to take it off my hands and use it herself.

Family home inspiration on a grey day

Today, I’m in need of some family home inspiration.

It’s one of those horrible days. The kids didn’t sleep well, and neither did the parents. Everyone is way too tired to function normally. On top of it, they are both coughing, and it can go both ways. How are you holding up these days?

So today, I really need some inspiration, and later I really need to cuddle and do nothing at all with the kids.

I’ll leave you with a beautiful family home, which I find quite interesting. I like the simplicity of the interior, the black, white, grey scale mixed with a lot of green plants. After the night we’ve had, I’m seriously considering buying a larger bed, or placing a bed for either my husband or me in my boy’s room. I’m really inspired by the one in this family home.

A charming room for a kid

It seems like the never ending story around here. When you think you’re done with the kids’ rooms, then it’s almost time to start re-decorating again.

Okay, I’m partly to blame, I know. I tend to find cool new solutions, and then I want to implement some of them in their rooms.

But apart from my ideas, we haven’t found the right storage solution either. We keep trying new things, but after a while, we get tired of it. It’s either too big, too small, too (insert word), I’m sure we’ve tried it all.

The beds are another problem. It would be so practical if our daughter had a bigger bed, with storage underneath. A cool solution for our son’s room would be a bed like the one in this apartment. It would create the space he needs on the floor, and he would have a nook underneath, where he could have a TV or something similar.

Picking out clothes with your tween – a wishlist

I mentioned earlier that my little girl turns 10 years old this month. She’s starting to care more about which clothes we buy, and she likes to try out different outfits. It’s so adorable seeing her grow in size, but also as a person.

Clothes girl

I’ve collected a few pieces of clothing from her wishlist, all of which she carefully picked out herself.

1. Blouse with lots of stars from Petit by Sofie Schnoor
2. Nitela limited slim fit jeans from Name it
3. Cloud bag from Zara
4. Cool ‘leather’ jacket from Zara
5. Misty grey Alaine jeans from Molo
6. Cool black boots with some pretty cool details from Zara
7. Peggy Knit from Soft Gallery
8. Super cute bag from Zara – I might have to get one for myself as well

When your little girl turns 10 – wishlist

Next week I’ll have an amazing 10 year old daughter. I can not believe it. Good thing I had her while I was still at university, otherwise I thing I would be feeling slightly old right about now.

gifts for the birthday girl - wishlist

Next thing I’ll know, she’ll be running around town with her friends, going to the cinema without an adult, and before I know it, she’ll be going to parties (while I lie awake all night, of course). Hopefully, she’ll still be the reasonable young lady then, who knows right from wrong (and acts accordingly). I love her to pieces.

With her birthday, another problem arises. What should we buy for her? It’s kind of a special day, so we should get her something special. I’ve collected a few things from her wishlist. I know she’ll get some of it, but we’ll have to wait and see about the rest.

1. Truly beautiful ‘Strokes’ bed linen from Sirlig
